|Publication Date:||1 September 2020|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
This test method covers separate procedures for determining the cleanliness of residual fuel oil and the compatibility of a residual fuel oil with a blend stock. It is applicable to residual fuel oils with viscosities up to 50 cSt (1 cSt = 1 mm2s) at 100 °C. This test method describes two protocols: one manual and one automated.
NOTE 1-This test method has not been evaluated for heavy distillate having the propensity to leave a wax sediment on the filter paper and contain no residual asphaltene.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
